Indio Casino Review

Review last updated - July 2017

OVERVIEW | 4.06/10


One of the older Playtech casinos on the market, Indio Casino and its sister property African Palace were bought over in 2011 by the Rand Logic group, which includes Grand Reef Casino. Commission 365 have made big improvements in the operation of Indio casino and seem to have resolved the issues of the past.

TRUSTWORTHINESS | 0/10


Only one of the 6 reviewers who work for ThePOGG.com on a regular basis hold an account with Grand Reef casino. They report positive experiences with Grand Reef casino.

Under the previous owners, in the mid 2000s there was a rash of issues involving Indio and African Palace slow paying customers, seizure of funds using vague ‘spirit of the bonus’ terms and various other unethical practices to stall payment and bully players into keeping quiet. Alongside this a very concerning documentary regarding the legal status of African Palace’s operations in South Africa was aired on South African television in 2010.

These issue seem to have been resolved since Commission 356 took over this group and African Palace and subsequently withdrawn from the South African market.

The Commission 365 started to display player payment issues in the later half of 2013 and when complaints started coming in refused to discuss the problems with us. These issues are serious enough that we would recommend players not engage with this group.

Since 2013 the payment issues displayed by this group have been consistent, with any four figure or more balance requiring a staggered payment plan that is put in place without any consultation with the player. Beyond this they have started sending payments less than the agreed instalment, blaming the discrepancies on bank transaction fees. This has been comprehensively demonstrated as untrue via communication with the involved banks. This dishonest behaviour has seen this group moved to our Blacklist.
